canvas printing steps
CREATING YOUR OWN CUSTOM MADE PICTURE AND PHOTO FRAMES ONLINE IS EASY, JUST FOLLOW THE STEPS BELOW
You need to upload the image/photo you would like canvas printed into the YourFramer online custom framing program. Simply click on ‘choose file’ to search for the image you’d like to use. Once you’ve found the right image simple press ‘upload file’ to upload the image into the YourFramer online custom framing tool.
In order for us to be able to print your image, we will need to know the size you’d like us to print. Select the print format from the drop down box. YourFramer will recommend a suitable option for you.
Select your medium, ie canvas. Images are only printed onto a high-quality canvas.
You can now select the size you want from the drop down menu. Once you’ve selected your size, YourFramer will give you an idea of the print quality of your image.
YourFramer Tip: make sure when you take photographs that your camera is on the highest setting. That way enlarging photos will not be an issue, and you avoid the picture becoming grainy.
There are different ways canvasses can be stretched – with a white edge or gallery wrapped. Canvases can also be ordered rolled only. This means they’re printed onto canvas ready for you to stretch yourself.
Gallery wrapped canvas – the image is wrapped around the stretcher bar. Note: as the image is wrapped around the stretcher bar you will loose part of the image. It’s a good idea to have enough space around the main subject if you’re using gallery wrap.
White edge canvas – no part of the image is wrapped around the stretcher bar.
Canvasses can also be ordered printed only, ready for you to stretch.

If you hover over ‘detail’ underneath the moulding it will give you the dimensions.
If you like your canvas unframed, simply press the Frame Not Required button.
Front loader frames, or floating frames, are ideal for canvasses. Have a look in the framing section when you’re framing yours.
The total amount will be calculated for you. Your freight will be added at the end when we have your delivery details.
Your canvasses will be sent to you ready to hang on your wall.
